Integrated Silicon Solution (ISSI) has announced a complete line of serial EEPROM devices for the automotive market.

This new product offering covers densities from 1K to 64K and is offered in all three popular interface protocols: I2C, Microwire and SPI. The devices are fabricated on 0.35 micron process technology at SMIC.

These devices are widely used in a broad range of automotive applications where unique or user defined codes need to be stored. Applications include remote control door locks, power seats and mirrors with memory, radios, odometers, and alarm systems.

Operating from 2.5V to 5.5V, ISSI’s new EEPROMs are available in 1K, 2K, 4K, 8K and 16K densities. The I2C and SPI devices are also offered in 32K and 64K densities.

The automotive grade EEPROMs are available in 150 mil JEDEC 8-pin SOIC, 8-pin TSSOP, and 8-pin DIP packages. RoHS compliant versions are also available. Samples of the 2K, 4K, 8K, and 16K can be requested now.

Samples of the 1K, 32K and 64K devices will be available in Q2 of 2005.
